Thank you! Did you happen to notice any relief or improvement with the Assisi Loop in your pup?

You are so right about his muscles tensing during the fall and each time he anticipates having to move again, making it difficult to use his muscles. He needs to be relaxed to engage them fully and properly.

Yes, now the work on the humans needs to begin…patience, optimism, and strength for the long haul.

Here and Now

It’s  hard to say about the loop, simply  because I was using it in conjunction with  laser and Rehab visits with exercises, etc.  So no one thing was isolated.  I can tell you that our “Volunteer  Vet”  here uses it on her dogs and recommends it to others.  

Massages should help a lot too.  The Rehab Vet always did lots of massages  before she did any ROM, etc.  And btw, his Rehab Vet was very “conserv6” in her remarks too.  I think it goes with the territory.

I may have already mentioned this,  but you might try Dasuquin  Advanced or Synovi to help with the arthritis  and overall joint health .

The tense muscle thing reminded  me of something.  Years ago some dogs got into a horrible fight for a couple of minutes, if that, before it was broken up.  While the damage  wasn’t  too bad (thankfully), one dog was basically  laid out for at least 24 hrs and could literally  barely move.  The Vet described  it as muscles  tightening up in ways they never had before like they would in a car wreck…neck spasms,  back spasms, etc. 

And add eating chocolate your  regimen…it helps!😁

The loop seems kind of magical…I hope it helps–the anecdotal stuff I’ve read says “meh”. I will look into Dasaquin– the vet did mention it but it slipped my mind to investigate.

That’s a great point your dog fight story illustrates…just also how much must have been tensed and activated in that moment of trauma…exhausting and so so painful and sore!

How do I post a pic of Boon? I figure it’s nice to see his mug after all this talking about him 😉

Here something  I copied from advice frommthe Addmin Guy on another post…..have no clue if it applies to your situation on not

To display properly, the URL must end in a valid image file format (e.g.; .jpg, .png, .gif). This is why we offer free Tripawds Blogs for anyone who does not already host images publicly somewhere.

Well shoot. They are ending in jpg. I have a website for my business and used the link from the media library through there, so not sure why it’s not working.

Sorry for the delay here. According to Admin there is some sort of techie thing on your website’s end that won’t allow the photos to display in our Forums but I was able to get around it. WHAT A CUTIE!!!

Oh huzzah! Yeah he’s a heartbreaker! We adopted him from city animal services around 10 years ago. He was initially found as a puppy wandering the streets, brought to the shelter, and then adopted by a man in another town. That man returned him because “he didn’t get along with my dogs”, and Boon sat for another month at the shelter before we found him…that was Easter Sunday, 2008. 🙂

Boon was clearly destined for great things with you. Best shelter rescue story ever!

Sorry for the inconvenience! The technical reason your hosted images will not display here is that SSL is not properly implemented for your website domain, and Tripawds only serves up secure content.

To get the coveted green padlock in user browsers that Google loves so much, we implement a mixed content filter that will convert http URLs to https for secure delivery of all content on any page here.

Since your domain does not have an active SSL certificate installed, the image link breaks when served up securely.

This is not to say that your website is necessarily insecure, only that no SSL certificate is configured with the https protocol forced to display secure content in the browser.

FYI: Most web hosts offer free shared SSL Certificates through Let’s Encrypt, and the Really Simple SSL plugin is an easy way to configure SSL and implement a mixed content filter for WordPress sites.

This is why we offer free Tripawds Blogs , for anyone who needs to securely host images for sharing here in the forums…

Hope this helps! way-cool

PS: Not that you asked, but in case you are not aware, you’re website is also having an issue rendering certain shortcodes. Please feel free to send a Private Message if you require web development assistance. winker

FYI, if I left-click on her picture links, I get an error message:

But if I right-click and choose to open it in another tab, I can see the picture.
